Food. Faith. Fellowship.

This evening, I had my university friends round for a meal. There were about 15 of us and it was fantastic. I have to admit right away that I didn’t cook, but there was excellent food and wonderful catch up time with dear, valued friends. It was truly a blessed time and an amazing opportunity to catch up on all of summer’s events.

It always strikes me how Jesus never underestimated the importance of food and just ‘being’ together, eating and enjoying each other’s company. It’s an important part of Christian faith. It’s an important part of who we are as humans.

Saying that, we should never neglect or underestimate the value of fellowship in the Church. We do it far too often, and it must stop. We’re not called to live the Christian life alone. We’re called to a body, a bride. And there are many members making up one family. If you think about that, it’s a very powerful thing…
